Suspect in custody following pursuit, standoff with LAPD in Hollywood

A woman is in custody following a pursuit and standoff in the Hollywood area.

The pursuit started on Highland Ave. and Wilcox Ave around 11:43 a.m. Officers attempted to pull over the driver for a stolen vehicle, but the suspect failed to yield and a pursuit ensued. 

During the pursuit the suspect struck at least three other vehicles, including a school bus. Officers say the pursuit lasted less than five minutes before the suspect struck a semi-truck head-on at the intersection of N. Highland Ave. and De Longpre Ave. 

SkyFOX was over the crash scene as the female suspect, inside a Black Jeep, refused to surrender, causing a standoff with police. 

Police officers blocked the Jeep in by crashing into its rear to prevent the suspect from driving off.
